Residents from across the city are invited to have their say about Manchester’s parks and could win £100 of supermarket vouchers by doing so.
Manchester City Council are embarking on a large-scale survey, asking people about their local parks and green spaces; if they use them, what they think of them and how they can be improved?
Residents are invited to share their opinions in a short online survey running until 31 October 2008.
Councillor Mike Amesbury, Executive Member for Culture and Leisure at Manchester City Council said: "The city's parks are often the first experience of landscape and nature for those growing up in urban areas and it is a major priority for us that people see them as places to relax and to enjoy leisure activities. We welcome any feedback good or bad as despite having more green flags than anywhere else in the country, we are determined to improve our parks even further and strive to ensure that more and more members of the local community can make use of and benefit from their parks."
The questionnaire can be accessed at www.manchester.gov.uk/parksurvey until 31 October and everyone who takes part will be automatically entered into a prize draw for £100 vouchers for a supermarket of their choice. Reponses can be submitted anonymously.
